Who are you closer to?

Mom, dad, siblings, grandma? I have always been much closer to my father than I was to my mother...I think she 'tolerated' me more than liked me. Don't get me wrong--I loved my mom but I don't think I would have sought her out as a friend. My younger sister and I are not close at all (mostly because she doesn't approve of my job). My grandparents were older (my parents waited to start a family) and my grandmothers both died by the time I went to high school. Tell your story please!

growing up i was close with my brother, then he moved away and then while i was in high school and to this day I am the closest with my sister. My real father passed away a year and a half ago and he had told me the real reason why him and my mother got divorced and those reasons and made me look at my mom in a different light so i do not think i could ever be close to my mother.

I have always been close to my mother. My father and I did not really get along until I was out of highschool. Now we get along great but my mother and I have always been close. She use to let me take a day off of school every once in a while or pick me up early and we would go to lunch together.

I am close to my younger sister. She is 3 years junior to me, but very close to my heart. I share all my darkest secrets with her. She guides me, helps me, and shares all her feelings with me. We are just the closest friends.
